Architecture in Helsinki have released the surreal video for their new single “Contact High.” Since premiering the song a few weeks ago, “Contact High” has been praised throughout the blogosphere for being “absurdly catchy” – as Prefix Mag put it.Featuring sexually-charged, disembodied limbs and moving photographs, among other tripped out visuals, the video has a lovably absurdist bent. The Australian group will release a new album, Moment Bends, on May 2nd via V2/Cooperative Music USA/Downtown Records.
